FASHION PROJECT 2016 - HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR
The 2016 Fashion Project is heading straight to the red carpet this year with the theme of “Hollywood Glamour”.
14 young people from Werrington and Erskine Park Youth Spaces have been working hard drawing, developing and constructing an outfit from recycled materials to the theme of “Hollywood Glamour”. These outfits will be on show on the catwalk at the showcase night on the 24th November 2016, that will be held at the ‘Museum of Contemporary Arts Australia’.
Throughout the Fashion Project we have run a number of different workshops that incorporated skill based learning activities, specific to the fashion stream. The Design Illustration workshops focused on basic design illustration skills, developing an inspiration/ mood board and developing the final illustration which young people will use in developing their final piece for showcase night.
Within this part of the design process we visited one of Australia’s leading fashion schools ‘The Whitehouse Institute of Designs’ for a 2 day workshop where young people worked with Sarah in developing their illustrations for a final production, young people also learnt skills rendering fashion drawings and communicating design through coloured fashion illustration and production drawing.
A huge thank you to ‘Whitehouse Institute of Designs ‘for supporting us with the Fashion Project and donating 2 School Holidays Scholarships to the value of $630 each.
Young people are currently working on the sewing component of the fashion project which is bringing their illustrations to life by constructing their final garment from the recycled materials. Through the Fashion Project this year we have worked in partnership with ‘Museum of Contemporary Arts Australia’ who are providing a beautiful venue where the showcase will be held this year as well supporting us on this creative project.
